Re: Behringer 2600

That's why I've learned not buy a product until they have worked out the bugs from early production units. Every company loves to spring announced and unannounced revisions on the early purchaser pioneers. Learn to temper your excitement to buy now... I know I would be pissed if I learned I could ge...

Re: Gear That Ought To Be Cloned

Also, it does have well-implemented velocity control but it does not have aftertouch except as a rare aftermarket modification (AT was not a common feature on synths back then). A clone should add at least channel AT. Huh, I thought it was standard. Then again, I just discovered this exists...a new...

Nord Modular G2. Add more modules like wav players and granular. Make the editor in something universal (like Java).

Strange that Alesis hasn't re-released it in the midst of all this new analog synth glory. The development is done, all you'd need to do is replace any obsoleted parts. Then again, I remember someone saying that the ASIC they came up didn't behave perfectly.

Re: transitioning to Apple silicon

At least they have external PCIe NVME drive enclosures now. Reserve the tiny internal SSD for boot only. But external storage is quite inconvenient on a laptop. I booted off an external SATA SSD in a $10 USB 3 drive enclosure for a couple years on a 2014 Mac Mini because I didn't want to open that m...

Re: transitioning to Apple silicon

I don't see how 32Gb operates as well as 8Gb. Sounds like fake news/spin to me. It can't "store" 32Gb of data. It's physically impossible. It matters for large sample libraries which will always perform better straight from RAM rather than a disk of any kind. If the argument is writing data to disk...

Re: transitioning to Apple silicon

So my setup is very simple: I'm running Reaper on a 2013 mbp pro 13" retina and in recent months I've been getting a lot more fan noise than before (although putting it on a tilt-up wireframe style stand has mitigated that considerably) and in general it has been running slower than it used to.

Re: First experience on USED market went as feared... Yours?

My personal stance for currently in-production items is that I won't buy used if it's not at least 50% off retail at under $100, and 30% off over that. Why? You get free shipping with new stuff and a (usually) hassle-free return policy if something goes wrong. Paying $60 (more like $75 with most sel...

I keep thinking I want to buy another one of these and hold onto it just in case I ever decide to get back into analog modular. Easy to make great sounds by sending a transient envelope into the CV input.

Re: Moog Grandmother

I think I found out the reason why I didn't like it. I found a teardown video, and they are using tiny pots like Behringer now to cut costs. They feel like they have lower resolution, and when you want to dial in precise sounds constantly it's annoying as hell. I was really prepared to lay out a gra...

I got to play one for the first time this afternoon. Aside from the spring reverb, there was nothing that great about it. More annoying limitations than anything, and the filter tracked 1v/oct terribly. I was surprised how the interface and sound felt "uncomfortable" in person, which was surprising....

On a smaller note, one way to counteract ' air miles' for produce at least, is to buy locally, and accept that ( for instance) here in the west coast of Scotland I have no god-given right to be able to buy avocadoes or strawberries, or whatever, all year round.

I'm happy to see Rob also explain why keeping the click filter matters. :tu: Because the 904B was not nearly as common as the LPF, these click filters have been too often left off the CP3 clones.
